Miro is billed as open source Internet TV which aims to bring a community of broadcasters together to create what they call an "Internet video ecosystem". But if you take away from the marketing hype surrounding Miro, you might see that it is an excellent option at watching videos online the Internet.

The program takes advantage of open protocols which allow you to suscribe to and watch podcasts and other Internet streams which are available by subscribing to RSS feeds. Miro uses Bit Torrent to download the files it finds and also gives you the option, probably used more often, of watching videos from online streaming and video sharing services like YouTube, Dailymotion or Vimeo. Subscriptions to YouTube channels is also easily performed by using Miro and gives you access to the latest videos uploaded and playlists created by YouTube publishers.

Miro features a program guide, something like an Electric Program Guide (EPG) which allows you to search for videos online by simply pointing, typing and clicking. The guide also allows you to add and remove video channels with the subscribe button. As of writing this, there were almost 3000 different channels for users to choose from when searching for videos. Each channel listed in Miro is free to watch and subscribe to.

The video quality of channels varies considerably and while you might be able to watch one video in high definition (720p or 1080i), the next may be of VHS VCR quality and not worth your time if you're picky about that. Additionally, some videos which contain musical tracks may not be available in your region, usually after a DMCA complaint or a demand from the copyright owner.

This program is an excellent application which takes off from when TVersity left off and the user interface is certainly cleaner and faster. Miro takes advantage of RSS feeds on the Internet containing videos and displays them in a clean and usable interface where users can view them.
